[[Shadow Pokémon]] are artificially altered Pokémon produced by [[Cipher]] in [[Orre]]. Collecting them via Snagging and restoring them to normal is the main goal in [[Pokémon Colosseum]].
A Shadow Pokémon has been turned into a souless fighting machine by artificially shutting off
it's emotions. [[Ein]], the brains behind the Shadow Pokémon process, refers to this as "shutting the door to their hearts".
Shadow Pokémon radiate a black aura that cannot normally be seen. However, [[Rui]] has psychic abilities that allow her to recognize Shadow Pokémon on sight. It was for this reason that she was kidnapped by members of Cipher.
